The more I read about everything since HP's Feb9 announcements, the more I feel that it's the software side of things that is really the hold up, not hardware.

Maybe Apothekar, when talking about shipping in weeks, was thinking about the hardware being ready but not knowing that webos wasn't ready?

Maybe the fact that carrier partners were absent from the feb 9 event was that all of it is just too beta to finalize distro deals?

my biggest fear is that we're going to have this nagging beta feel with the os all over again with the Pre3? (just without the oreo effect this time...we hope) how long are we going to be in limbo on the app front?
